Favorites do not open new tab And Always open favorites in new tab option unavailable 116.0.1938.1

Brass Contributor

So as of Version 116.0.1938.1 (Official build) dev (64-bit), favorites still do not open in a new tab AND the option edge://settings/appearance > Always open favorites in new tab. is still MIA.

Are others having this same issue? What is the real status of this feature?

Always open favorites in a new tab now available!

Since we launched the Chromium-based version of Microsoft Edge, we have heard from our community that they want the Edge legacy feature of favorites opening in a new tab when you click a saved link. This is a request that is listed on our Top Feedback Summary and we are excited to share that we have implemented this in our Dev and Canary channels!When working on a task, sometimes you need to open a favorite website but don't want to necessarily pull away from the page you are already on. Now, by default, when you click on a favorite either from the Favorites fly out or from the Favorites bar it will open in a new tab instead of interrupting your flow. If you are the type of person who uses other shortcuts like the middle mouse click or likes favorites opening in the same page, you can turn off this setting on the Appearance settings at edge://settings/appearance > Always open favorites in new tab.Want to let us know your thoughts on this update or find an issue when the setting is enabled?
